Christ’s Healing is NOT in Competition with Christ’s Salvation

It grieves me deeply when I see God’s own children speaking anything that minimizes Christ’s healing and the brutality that Jesus endured to pay for it FOR us in full. Healing from sickness is 100% included in His atonement [finished work].

OPINIONS like the one in the graphic above that a child of God with MANY followers recently shared are unscriptural, harmful, and careless with not only how His Word is being handled but towards those who are suffering with sicknesses in their body or their children’s.

Why pit salvation and healing against one another in even the slightest way? Christ’s healing is NOT in competition with Christ’s Salvation. They are BOTH included as a FREE gift for ALL in His atonement…for it is written…

Surely He has borne our [a]griefs [sicknesses in original Hebrew]
And carried our [b]sorrows
[pains in original Hebrew];
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all,”
(Isaiah 53:4-6).

The enemy twists the Word of God, masquerading as an angel of light so what people, say, even God’s own people, “sounds” good and “righteous” to the ears of man, BUT are actually unscriptural and lead people astray. For it is written…

If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand,” (Mark 3:24).

And healing, a FREE gift from God, part of the atonement of Jesus Christ, is NOT part of the prosperity gospel. That false doctrine is from the darkest pits of hell and is a direct attack on Jesus Christ, the Word, who was maimed beyond recognition to atone for all sin and heal all our sicknesses.

Strong’s 3148 mástiks, original Greek meaning. This one Greek word means disease, plague, scourge, oppressive pain and suffering as from an acute disorder, literally whipping to afflict with pain.

“They will scourge [whip] Him and kill Him. And the third day He will rise again,” (Luke 18:33).

“Who Himself [Jesus] bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed,” (1 Peter 2:24).

Jesus was whipped/scourged with stripes during the atonement to heal us from disease, disorders, pain, suffering, oppression in our physical bodies. How anyone can minimize what our Lord did and lump it into the prosperity gospel can only be from demonic deception by religious/deceiving demonic spirits.

Healing and salvation are not in competition with one another. They are of the same work of Christ that He cares equally about.

Acts 10:38

God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing ALL who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

1 John 3:8

He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

The PURPOSE of Jesus coming to the earth was to destroy the works of the devil – that is defined as sin (of the devil) and everything that entered the earth because of sin, thus also sickness.

Many sicknesses are caused by demonic spirits! You can know that you know by the Word of God that Jesus cares A LOT about getting those demons off of people.

Let the Word alone be a lamp unto your feet, a light unto your path. Hallelujah!

UPDATED/added a few hours later to this post. Our Good Father, confirming His Word and heart regarding healing…just appeared on my YouTube stream a few minutes ago, ~ 4:11 PM EST.

God Defines ALL Sickness as Captivity | Jesus Came to Set Captives Free

The enemy has deceived a great many in the church into redefining God’s Word into outright lies, leading them astray and into calling what is evil, good. This includes diseases, disorders, defects, and all manner of sickness.

The Word of God only defines sickness as oppression or captivity of the devil and a curse under the law, never as a blessing. See Acts 10:38, Luke 13:16, Deuteronomy 28.

In order for a child of God to call ANY sickness a blessing, they must do so by denying His Word, calling Him a liar, and are therefore embracing another gospel.

The state of many of God’s children is described in 2 Corinthians 11:3-4. But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted—you may well put up with it!

Tragically, many have embraced the evil’s ones redefinition of sickness, coming into agreement with him. Therefore, empowering his lies and authority over their health – body and soul, mind, will, and emotions. Even pulpits have been infected with these re-definitions about sickness, thus becoming mouthpieces for the enemy. Instead of being filled with Christ’s passion to set captives free and heal the sick, they become his prison guards, helping him hold many captive.

Listen to this blog post here.

When did we first see this happen? When was the first time in the Word that man embraced a false doctrine of satan, entered into unbelief, magnified the words of satan above God’s, chose to call their good Father a liar, and therefore empowered the evil one and his authority in their lives? With Adam and Eve. Read Genesis chapter 3.

The enemy knows the Word of God better than most of God’s people as well as how the spiritual laws and principals of God’s Holy Kingdom work. One such spiritual law is unbelief. Jesus teaches us through His Word that unbelief is choosing to reject Him, His Word, and will by one’s free will. This blocks the one exercising it from receiving Him and/or His promises for themselves. See Matthew 13:58. This is precisely why the evil one violently attacks the Word of God through twisted redefinitions. That people enter into unbelief and reject God’s promises for themselves.

The next time the father of lies comes roaring about trying to get you to embrace one of his false, evil doctrines and re-definitions regarding sickness and healing, you can say:

“For it is written in Acts 10:38, ‘God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.’

Jesus went about doing good and that good was healing all who were oppressed by the devil. Not God. The devil.

And in 1 John 3:8, ‘He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.’

Sickness entered the world through sin, and all sin is of the devil, and is a work of the devil Jesus came to destroy.

And in John 10:10, ‘The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.’

Sickness if of the devil, is a form of death, not life.

2 Corinthians 6:14-15, ‘For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what agreement has Christ with Belial?

Jesus has no agreement with the devil. The devil is in rebellion against God who doesn’t have any agreement with that evil one, and a it is written, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand,’ Matthew 12:25.

Anyone who says satan is God’s boxing glove is calling their heavenly Father a liar. The Word says Christ has no agreement with the devil. Let God be true and every many a liar.

We must return with all our hearts to the Word of God and to His definitions of things alone, so we may obey His mandate to heal the sick and set captives free.

“By Jesus’ stripes, we were healed,” 1 Peter 2:24. Jesus was whipped and afflicted with stripes as payment for our physical and soul healing.

It’s His will and passion to heal us because He already did at the whipping post and through the shedding of His powerful blood. Hallelujah!

Heal the Sick – The Secret to Making it Work | A Be Healed Teaching by Curry Blake

A teaching by brother Curry Blake of JGLM ministries. Sharing his Spirit-led teachings that rightly divide the Word of God on Jesus’ atonement (finished work) that body and soul healing was indeed included when our Lord said, “It in finished!” two thousand years ago.

This teaching is called Heal the Sick – THE Secret to Making it Work from the Be Healed Teaching series.

Some scriptures taught from:

  • Colossians 1:27
  • John 14
  • Romans 8
  • 2 Corinthians 2

Some notes:

Those like John G. Lake who were consistently co-labored with Christ to heal the sick “were FULLY persuaded that physical healing is included in the atonement.”

Brother Lake was “committed to overcome until God won!” I love this perspective because it causes us to point to Jesus and His victory and not look at ourselves. When we see it as obedience to our Heavenly Father, an assignment to glorify Him, this empowers us to not give up on HIM and to allow Him to work through us to destroy the works of the devil by healing the sick.

To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory – Colossian 1:27.

To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily – Colossian 1:29.

The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you – John 14:17.

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us – Romans 8:37.

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place – 2 Corinthians 2:14.

“I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people” – 2 Corinthians 6:16.

He has joined Himself together with us. We can’t be separated from Him, like the picture of marriage – 2 become 1.

What we have today after the Jesus’ whipping, death, burial and resurrection is like nothing anyone ever experienced before this. e.g. old testament saints.

This teaching comes from JGLM’s New Man series too which can be found on their site: https://www.jglm.org/
